Lesson error? Ruy Lopez - 3...Nf6

HJaggers

I generally go through the set up moves on a separate board when reviewing lessons. I'm sure there's a mistake here, though. Or maybe I need to change my coffee brand?

For easier viewing:

"One old line runs 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6 (the Berlin) 4.0-0 Nxe4 5.Re1 (Nowadays 5.d4 is considered best. Then 5...Nd6 6.dxe5 Nxb5 7.a4 is fun.) 5...Nd6 6.Nxe5 Nxe5 (6...Be7 is better, disallowing 7.Nc3 Nxb5 8.Nd5 because of 8...Nbd4!) 7.Rxe5+ Be7 8.Nc3! Nxb5? 9.Nd5! 0-0 10.Nxe7+ Kh8 11.Qh5 d6, reaching our starting position."

ok so why do u think there is an error?

White to move and win.

This is a famous game, composed by Lasker in 1894.

Moreover, if u want us to check this lesson, why not giving a link?

The error was Black’s in allowing White to reach a position to carry out Anastasia’s Mate.

It is a lesson which shows what happens if black plays carelessly : that is the whole idea to show the "mistake(s)".

I think all the  lesson is wrong and seriously outdated.

Berlin is called Old World curiocity and relic. Really? It has stopped being a curiocity 18 years ago.

The only relic in this case is the lesson itself.

I was not commenting on the game, just the transcription.

"6.dxe5". Following the moves, I saw no e5 for d to take.

 

IM poucin: Clearly lessons are for learning, genius. ,-)

 

DierdreSkye / OldPatzerMike: Thanks for your civilsed responses. happy.png

6.dxe5 happens on a line given with 5.d4.

No need to be a genius for stating it. wink.png

The comments are a bit outdated, as mentioned, i.e 5Re1 played three times in last WC Match between Carlsen and Karjakin. You could get clue of good ways of playing against 5Re1 from those games.
